A couple updates on Eagles draft workouts/visits before I make my way to Citizens Bank Park for the first of many trips this season.
The Birds met with UConn wide receiver Marcus Easley last week, according to Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post.
Easley (6-3, 210) emerged last season, catching 48 balls for 893 yards and eight touchdowns. Earlier in his career, Easley was a special-teams standout, according to NFL.com's scouting report. He ran a 4.46 at the combine.
As I've mentioned this offseason, the Eagles have room on their roster for a couple more wide receivers. Those could be guys they've already signed, but they could definitely be guys they draft also, although not with an early pick since four receiver spots are already filled on the roster (DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Hank Baskett). Obviously, someone who's able to contribute on special teams will have a leg up.
